    review rating 5  Tim with Drains Inc is awesome! Our sewer line was backing up and Tim came promptly at scheduled time with equipment and camera. We discovered we had serious tree roots in our line and after rodding all the way to the street we were clog free. Tim is very professional and we highly recommend his services for any plumbing needs and he even fixed my dripping bathroom faucet! Thanks Tim for a great experience!

    review rating 5  My wife and I were having flooding problems in our basement. Every time we used the toilets or ran the dishwasher or took showers for the past 2 days, the drain hole in the basement would flood. After being referred to Drains Inc by a plumber, I spoke with Tim over the phone and he was able to come out and take a look the same day. He took a look around, said I think you have a soft blockage somewhere, grabbed his partner (Adam, I believe his name was) and the rooter cable and went to work. They were done in a matter of minutes.

    Tim and Adam were quick, friendly, knew what they were doing, and charged a fair price. Could not have asked for more and will definitely keep their contact info handy for future jobs in the house!

    review rating 5  Tim was great! Cleaned out my drains. I was about to spend $5000 to have one of the bigger guys dig up my yard for the second time this year! He is great I would highly recommend calling him for his opinion before hiring anyone else!

    review rating 5  Tim is so helpful and kind. He talked me though the issue and gave advice. He even checked in with me later to make sure everything was going well. He goes above and beyond!

Backwater valves to prevent sewer backflow

Flood control systems

Backwater valves are generally easier and cheaper to install but they have some limitations. For one, you cannot use any of the facilities in your home while it is in the closed position. And if you have seepage tiles or foundation drains that are tied into the sanitary sewer service, your basement may still flood once the valves close as the footing drains or seepage tile water will be trapped and could back up.

Backwater valves

prevent sewer backflow

If so the footing drains or seepage tile will need to be separated out to a new sump pump pit. If you have a basement with no sump pump pit, assume that you have the footing drains or seepage tiles tied directly into your sewer service. Contact us today for more information.

Regular maintenance for optimal preparedness

Some maintenance is required to keep the protection measure in operation. If a backwater valve is recommended to prevent sewer backups, you should realize that regular maintenance is needed to keep the improvement working as intended. Inspection and cleaning of a backwater valve system is recommended once a year.
